Photographs, Information and Stories

April 3, 2010

Hello All

As much as I try, it makes for much better reading if there is more than just facts, figures and negative things about a person.

I would hope there is much more to a person than say a news article saying they were charged with an offense or something. If you recognize your relative here, please consider telling me about that person. I would be delighted to include it here.

Also please consider sending me any photographs for inclusion here.

Regards

Miles J. Kent 1813 - 1888
Mary Anne Kent (Wheelbarger) 1817 - 1857
James Kenneth Kent 1842 - 1924
Samantha Kent (Smith) 1843 - 1899
Burchard Ervin Kent 1878 - 1951
Minnie (Lovell) Kent 1894 - 1973
Raymond E. Kent 1930 - 2000

Note: This is the point where I need to prove Miles parents, and at this point it is not looking good for George Kent being his Dad and Amy being his Mom. My clues I'm following is a Christian Grove being at Miles wedding stating that he knew Miles to be over 21 and that both of Miles parents have since passed away by 1839. Miles married a Wheelbarger. I have Richard Kent  at some point in Fairfax County, a Samuel Kent and a John Kent at some point in Prince William County and a Christian Grove owning land through the Virginia  Northern Neck Lands grants 1742-1175. With a Richard, Samuel, and John Kent owing tracts of land through the Norther Neck Lands grant. I also have a Christian Grove  near a Mathias Wheelbarger in 1840 in Augusta County, VA. Also after doing the math Miles J. Kent was not enumerated as being with the George and Amey Swain family, in the 1820 and 1830 census. He doesn't even get counted as a mystery child when comparing the numbers to George and Amey's children. Nothing seems to fit Miles with George and Amey. England is the next research area for Mile's parents.
It's possible that George is Miles brother and he was referring to his parents John and Rachel Kent on his wedding?

For Mile's and his siblings look for ***and click on any name to access further information.
